Salvatore Ganacci and his experimental approach
The enormous energy and experimental approach of the Swedish DJ and producer Salvatore Ganacci has won the hearts of electronic music fans all over the world. Emir Kobilić was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina on July 29th, 1986, and from a very young age his passion for “Clubbing” sounds has led him to develop a great musical career.
Ganacci launched its first collaboration with Jillionaire of Major Lazer. And later on, his debut single "Fresh" through Universal Music Group, became an instant hit on the dance floor. A year later Ganacci signed a record deal with Sebastian Ingrosso's label, Refune Music. Together with the Swedish House Mafia member and the Swedish newcomer LIOHN, they released the single 'FLAGS!' and months later returned on the scene alongside Enya and Alex Aris with the single 'Dive', which had more than 9 million plays on Spotify, reaching number 15 on Billboard's dance charts.
After several years on the cusp, Salvatore Ganacci is now a central piece of the best festivals in the world, as evidenced by his presence on the main stage of the Tomorrowland Festival.
Salvatore Ganacci performed with Martin Garrix on the 8th of August in Ushuaïa Ibiza.
Jonas Blue and the tropical house
Guy James Robin, better known as Jonas Blue, is a composer, producer, and DJ of that special genre called tropical house. Born on August 2, 1989, in London, his passion for music was transferred by his younger sister and parents, music lovers and especially genres such as soul, disco and funk.
Before he turned 13, he already took his first steps as a DJ, and the love for this sound was as such that he decided to leave school to devote himself to his dream. At the age of 18, he was already playing in front of more than 700 people in the clubs and little by little he was presented with opportunities such as working with Rochelle Perts and Harry Shotta.
But his big break occurred in 2015, with the version of the song "Fast Car" by the renowned American singer Tracy Chapman, featuring the singer Dakota. That same year he signed a contract with Virgin EMI Records and Positiva and a year later with Capitol, making his music known worldwide.
Jonas Blue performed with Martin Garrix last August 15th in Ushuaïa Ibiza.
Justin Mylo, an old acquaintance of Garrix
Justin Mylo is a DJ and EDM producer in Amsterdam who started playing around local clubs as a teenager and set out to produce his own dancefloors hits. He began performing at international concerts in 2014 and co-produced Martin Garrix's single "Bouncybob" in 2015. And in 2016, Mylo and Dutch EDM producer Mike Williams released their single "Groovy George" on Tiësto's Musical Freedom Records.
Justin Mylo's future gets brighter day by day. Since the summer of 2015, his name has appeared on the lineup of events such as Multiply Ibiza. Music has always been Justin Mylo's greatest passion and he never doubted that it was the only thing that would bring him happiness in the future.
"It's hard to say if I like to produce or play more because I think the connection between the two things makes it complete. Making my own music and seeing the reaction I get from the crowd makes my work the best I've ever seen," Justin Mylo said in a recent interview.
Justin Mylo performed with Martin Garrix on August 22nd in Ushuaïa Ibiza.
Riton and the dance culture of the nineties
Henry Smithson´s career, also known as Riton, in dance music began thanks to the exposure of dance music culture in the 1990s and the raves experiences of Renaissance, near his home in Newcastle. His success in different clubs led to the creation of his record label Switch, which aided in releasing various songs thus grabbing the attention of Manchester´s hip-hop patriarch, Mark Rae.
Rae offered Smithson a job at his Fat City record store in Manchester and an outing for his solo material on Grand Central's Central Heating 2 compilation. Since then, his career has continued to grow to become one of his style's most well-known DJs. Riton is a perfect choice for Martin Garrix's closing party.
“My productions sound different than anything you'll hear in Grand Central because my background is nourished by house and that gives rise to a different sound, but with those jazzy touches that they like so much on the label,'' Riton said in a recent interview.
You can enjoy Riton´s sound alongside Martin Garrix on 29th of August in Ushuaïa Ibiza.
